Product Description

Review

"It is rare to find a reference book that you do not want to stop reading, but The Audio Dictionary fits that description... Each definition, from absolute pitch to zero reference, is actually a mini-article with concise yet thorough explanations that are easy for non-specialists to understand." Music Educators Journal --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

You have questions? This book has answers. 29 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the first book off my shelf whenever I have a question about any aspect of audio. Occasionaly, I find that an entry I expect to see is not there, but that is rare. By and large, the entries here serve, at least, as a solid foundation of almost any concept about which I need clarification.

This is an excellent addition to your Sound Library 20 Nov. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have found this book to be especially handy in finding definitions to audio terms that are virtually impossible to find even in expensive Sound recording text books.

Concise and comprehensive source of information 23 Mar. 2006
By Sandro de Castro - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Audio Dictionary is a great book for anyone who's looking for a concise, clear explanation of any audio-related term. It's not (and does not pretend to be) a complete treaty like the Handbook for Sound Engineers, but offers a quick and reliable solution for those questions for which you don't have an answer from the top of your head and don't want to spend 2 hours reading the complete scientific explanation.

I consider it a must-have for any Audio Engineer who takes his profession seriously and have at least one copy in the library of each school we operate in Spain.

"A Must Have" 11 July 2001
By Chikako Oku - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was a total beginner of sound engineering field when I bought this book. And this handy book helped me alot because I could find any technical terms I wanted to know in it and the definitions there are clear enough to understand even though I'm not a native English speaker. So, I recommend you to have this if you're beginners.
